Your first step in becoming a PADI scuba diving professional is the PADI Divemaster Internship. Your Divemaster Internship Program will have you working closely with our international experienced professional development staff to help you expand your dive knowledge and sharpen your diving skills to the professional level.
Here at Baja Diving Academy, located at the Cabo Pulmo Beach Resort, we are serious about providing the best quality divemaster internships the world has to offer, but that’s not the whole experience. You will be working and living with other divemaster internship participants from all over the world. The excitement and cultural flavor of Cabo Pulmo makes it the setting of the diving adventure of a lifetime.
Every person taking our programs is important to us. So, at Baja Diving Academy, you will not be treated as a number. We like to keep our classes small so that we can give you all the personal attention you need and deserve. Throughout your course you will receive individualized counseling and feedback regarding your performance. We want you not only to be able to easily pass the Instructor Examination, but to thoroughly prepare you to begin your career in the dive industry. Our dedicated team of experienced Course Director and Staff Instructors are always available at the facility after hours to help you with academic study.
